Ann Perdue Honored With 2015 University Libraries Staff Service Award

Ann Perdue of Access Services has received the University Libraries Staff Service Award for 2015.

Ann Perdue
The University Libraries Staff Service Award was established in 1997 upon the retirement of Martha Ransley, former Head of the Circulation Department "to recognize and reward members of the SPA Library Staff who provide outstanding leadership and service in furthering the accomplishment of the mission of the Library to provide service to students, faculty, staff and members of the community which the University serves."

who created the Staff Service Award

Ann has actually been employed by the library twice -- from 1994-1998 and then coming back from more in 2007.  She started in 1994 as the Circulation Desk Manager, moved into the Stacks Manager position in 1996, left the Library in 1998, but came back in 2007 when the Stacks/Remote Storage Manager position became available.

In announcing her award, her nominator cited the quality of her work, her energy, her stamina, and her sense of humor, noting especially how self-motivated she is.  

Ann has been instrumental in effecting the changes required for the Libraries to re-purpose space in recent years by planning, organizing, providing and supervising staff and students to accomplish the bulk of the moving and shifting projects the Library has required.

Congratulations, Ann!
